Random things we pick up and play with. 🙂
These are the random things we pick up and play with. I often show Yining the things around us as we walk like plants, flowers, insects etc. I want her to be more aware of her environment.
Today we were walking, she stopped and said she wants to play with the flower of this dandelion-like plant. I’m not sure what it is, but it’s a weed in Singapore, growing all over the place. As we played with it, I took the opportunity to teach her about the propagation of seeds. She went on with her imagination to talk about how far the seeds will fly and how they will grow up into flowers again.
There are a lot of things around us that we can show our children. Besides educating Yining, I also want to teach her to slow down and look at the simple, yet amazing things around us.
